it's the tenth hosted in the big easy, tying it with miami for the city with the most number of super bowls, look. there were a lot of people concerned that maybe the town couldn't handle it anymore and host a party this big. so far they have shown that they're worth that effort and even more. everyone here from city officials to the business owners knew that this was their chance to show america and the world they were not only back but better than they were before katrina, before the oil spill. and everyone that we talked to on the street seems pretty pleased with the way things are going to this point. ask some of those who are cheering for the team that loses on sunday if they still like new orleans. they may have a bit of a different attitude. right now it's a good time here in the big easy. >> come on, jay. win or lose you can never hate on new orleans. one of america's great cities. thank you. >> reporter: thank you. >>> from the gridiron to the table, let's spin on this. i'm very excited about sunday's game. i like the story of capper nick. i love ray lewis and the final ride.

-breaking storm for them. new york city's probably going to be in the 12 to 18-inch range. here in boston, we are under blizzard warnings now. blizzard conditions expected with the prolonged time of wind and heavy snow. the snow is really picking up in boston right now. the radar showing it's all snow. temperatures there below freezing and the timing is such that the snow will continue to pick up over the next few hours. by nightfall, probably two to four inches of snow. blizzard conditions this evening. probably 25 to 40 hello mile-her hof sustained winds and through the night and even rising to 35 to 60-mile-per-hour range. 12 to 18 inches more falling and then tomorrow morning beginning to see it taper off and additional five inches could fall and blizzard conditions for a while longer, perhaps even after the snow tapers off and visibility will be very low. we'll continue to watch all of new england, as well as new york city, which is under that blizzard threat, as well. you're under a blizzard warning from new york northward and out toward long island and seeing the possibility of gusty w

is structured and differently in different cities. in new york, manhattan is very well served by buses and subway trains and further out in to the but rougs and then further options and whereas in atlanta, the subways and the trains and buses constructed in a way and difficult to get from the poorer area of town to the more pros pous area of town and harder to get to work in other parts of town. do you think that these are like created in this way to keep people sort of defacto segregated? >> certainly, we have a long history of not investing in public transit and looking at the highway act back in the 1980s, most of our federal dollars were going to building, highs, repairing highways and something important for our economy. we don't want to suggest that's not important but at the same time when you look at both not just the benefit to the economy but the way in which communities and communities of color dependent on public transit, if we fail to create roots from communities of color to where jobs are located then obviously we are going to see higher unemployment rates in communities

cordial e-mails i have ever seen. >> i was just trying to watch "duck dive city" live premier and twitter exploded with this story. some of you may be wondering how the story comes about, especially one that develops mostly on twitter. well, it starts as you would expect with hard breaking news. it was a day like any other for buzz feed. yesterday afternoon andrew posts a picture of taco pat. >> aw! dumb. >> time stands adorably deliciously still. after everyone recovers, news rolls in. 8:01 p.m., politico posts the first piece on a testy exchange of woodward and an aide in the white house and then ben smith reports sperling sent the e-mail to woodward. some ironically tweets woodward makes me suspect nixon got a raw deal. chin up, buddy. katrina from the nation observes that smart interns at the publication have no idea who woodward is and d.c. establishment freaked out about the critique and then buzz feed chimes in and almost scolds everyone for no experience to know what the hell they're talking about. >> supposed to be you? >> that's not me. and then justin green punches back, if buz
